The atmosphere of this place was great. Considering it is located in the middle of a neighborhood in the heights, I had my doubts... But the music was great and they have a big patio area in the back that makes it a perfect place to be on a nice day.

The quality of taps that they had was great. Alot of beers that you dont normally see around town and they rotate in new beers all the time.

I had great service when we went and they were very informative and helpful with my gf who is just getting into craft beer. They also do growler fills and I'm pretty sure they are the only place in town to do so.

Food was excellent. They are ranked in the top 4 for best burgers in Houston. Not to mention their hummus appetizer really hit this spot.

I thought that the beers were all reasonably priced for their selection. I was not upset when I received my bill at all

I definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a good craft beer and I cant wait to go back myself.

I really like the vibe of this place. My kind of laid-back joint...Staff seemed knowledgeable and they were friendly. Good selection of beers, albeit not the largest in Houston. We sat outside and enjoyed my first Brash beer. Anxious to go back (slightly less excited about Brash beers but I will give them another shot with a different style).

Surprised at the residential neighborhood location. Got there on a Tuesday right after they opened. Was already pretty crowded. Not too many seats inside. Larger area outside (not good on this particularly colder (for Houston) day). Great selection of beer (you couldn't go wrong with any of them), but what I was really after was trying out some Brash stuff, which is right down the street. I was not disappointed.

I was most surprised by the quality food to match the quality draft list. Did not expect that.

This is a great place.

neighborhood bar for me. have around 30 taps, all quality craft. typically weighted toward hoppier and higher abv beers. fairly priced, good food, but its not quick when busy. limited inside seating, but tons outside. fun, laid back vibe. my favorite place to drink in houston.

a few extra notes if you havent visited:
-there is no waitstaff. order beers and food at the bar. your food will be delivered to your table, however.
-no dogs. kids are allowed, but you dont see them too often.
-no tvs
-no darts, bar games.
